‘Lefties with Guns’ Up Ante on Protest Conflicts

How many actual rednecks and workers are members remains unclear.

“Protesters arrested for using pepper spray on Trump supporters during march,” CBS News reported Saturday. “The violence erupted when the march of about 2,000 people at Bolsa Chica State Beach reached a group of about 30 counter-protesters, some of whom began spraying the irritant…”

Dust-ups happen. We’ve seen calls for violence against “fascists” and “Nazis” by mob-inciters that resemble nothing so much as the fascists and Nazis they decry. And we’ve seen reactions to bullying, intimidation and assaults exemplified by the emergence of those intent on pushing back, like Based Stick Man.

It should come as no surprise that when the potential for physical conflict exists, those involved will want to position themselves to prevail. So it should also come as no surprise that “lefties with guns” would be emerging at protest demonstrations .

“Gun-Totin’ Left-Wingers Demonstrate at the Arizona Capitol,” Phoenix New Times notes sympathetically. “Is Bloodshed on the Horizon?”

It’s a report about “openly armed to the proverbial teeth” supporters of the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club, self-described as “Working to stem the tide of reactionary recruitment within white working class communities, fight white supremacy, & build liberatory community defense.” That, in turn, references to Redneck Revolt (“Putting the RED back in redneck”).

Basically, their “philosophy” is communist and globalist, against private property, capitalism and sovereign nations. They’re also heavy on self-serving “justifications” that make it seem like they share many of the same goals with patriotic Americans, such as being “for organized defense of our communities” and “against white supremacy” (albeit couching it that way, instead of just saying “against “racism,” is done for pretty obvious reasons, particularly when they let slip with such gems as “Our real enemies are mostly white English speaking Christians”).

It’s no surprise they don’t name their leaders, and that their website is registered via a proxy. Nor is it evident how many actual “workers” and “rednecks” are members.  Likewise, information on the people receiving and divvying up John Brown Solidarity Fund donations (as well as prominent donors, if any) is not made obvious, nor do they appear to be listed as a nonprofit under that name.

It’s curious though, that the one “identifiable” entity, Redneck Revolt’s website designer, Monsoon Media Collective, proudly declares “WE BELIEVE that small businesses support families in our community…” How that squares with anti-capitalist radicals committed to abolishing private property under force of arms remains unexplained, as does how other clients might feel about continued patronage if they knew about the rope Monsoon is helping to sell.

Here’s the thing: The Constitution, a document Redneck Revolt philosophy cannot allow, recognizes their rights to advocate, to protest and defend themselves. They have the right to do so armed, much like the Revolutionary Black Panther Party. What they don’t have a right to do is initiate armed violence to threaten and force their will on those of us who refuse to follow their totalitarian roadmap.

Don’t make the mistake of looking at the people involved and dismissing them based solely on appearance. And as we can see from Redneck Revolt’s “resources” page, a concerted effort is being made to increase and inform their ranks.

Those behind that effort know their Chairman Mao. They know:

Every Communist must grasp the truth; “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”

Anybody notice any of the NRA-bashing gun-grab groups, from the Democrat Party on down, saying word one about “lefties with guns? No? So there may be a convergence of hidden hands and useful idiots?

Is it a coincidence that there’s a comparatively lesser-known quotation wherein goals converge?

We are advocates of the abolition of war, we do not want war; but war can only be abolished through war, and in order to get rid of the gun it is necessary to take up the gun.

Or as Fidel Castro asked once he attained power:

¿Armas para que?

UPDATE: A WarOnGuns comment suggests deployment with Airsoft guns by some.

    Keep crying you little men, your tears are so sweet to us. You are not the only ones with arms.

      Yeah, but we know how to use them.

      We can also afford and maintain (and buy lots and LOTS of ammo for) things other than crap-tier pawn-shop rusty Mosins and SKS’s.

    Two things. First, its hilarious that one liberal is harassing another liberal. That’s priceless. Second, it should be a wake up call that not all Liberals are UN-armed. I would venture to say when shit starts to his the fan, they would give up quickly.

    I never underestimate any threat. Even the cleverly veiled ones. What the snowflakes don’t understand, is that there are SO MANY of us veterans and current military service personnel out there, that don’t think the same way the liberal left does. And, we’re fed up with their hypocrisy and pushing their socialist agendas on us. Bring it on snowflakes…if you want your herd to be thinned out to a tolerable level.

    No matter whether or not I would like to push the lefties’ faces in, or provide them with free ventilation, it would be EXACTLY what the PsTB/NWO schmucks want.
    We must fight them on a higher level.

      Sometimes you can put out a fire with water. Sometimes, like in a wildfire, you have to light a back burn. The only higher level I will fight Libtards from is the top of a building.

    Old coot here. I fought for constitutional government my adult life. Believe me, we lost. Our Constitution did not fail us, we failed it.

    The reality is that we are just ‘a knock on the door’ from indefinite detainment without charge or legal defense, theft of our property, even murder; all brought down upon us for any reason or no reason at all.

    These SJWs are no real threat. Our enemy is the globalist-controlled DC with their Nazi Police State, Surveillance State, Welfare State, and Warfare State. Why are we are hell-bent on wasting precious time and resources trying to save an evil system which destroyed our liberty? They won. Get over it.

    Jefferson warned us that the ‘tree of liberty’ would require maintenance. It’s was systematically dismembered and taken to the saw mill on our watch. Incredibly, not one shot was fired. History will record that we patriots were the proverbial frogs in the pot.

    If America’s last gasp is a whimper it is game over. If it ends in chaos leading to anarchy maybe we will be motivated to take the offense. The liberty movement has basically taken a defensive, leaderless approach. So be it. In light of such I recommend: Avoid crowds. Read ‘Patriots’ and act accordingly with a survival mindset. Yes, it probably means moving. (Parents, the two greatest gifts you can give your children are Jesus Christ and schooling at home). No man is an island though. Form a local Oath Keepers’ CBT team or equivalent. 73’s!

      The ugly part of this is former Army, Marine, Navy,etc that a pro Democrat are now training these retards to shoot. Yesterday they were metrosexual retards and now they are idiots that can shoot. The fact that they are willing to go to the guns worries me in that with no control over emotions and no common sense we will have more shootings of police and peaceful demonstrators because of this training. My training precludes me of pulling the trigger unless deadly force is necessary. I think these idiots will pull the trigger at a whim.

        They might get some training from POGs. I can’t see anyone from SOF sinking that low.
        At least we won’t be bored.

    They called it the “Redneck Revolt?” Their leader didn’t want to talk to media, especially liberal sources?

    Their goal was not to declare a start to Liberal/Progressive revolution, it was to make it appear that good, principled, right leaning individuals were taking up arms and going to the streets. They didn’t want to be outed for what the are, but to besmirch YOUR reputation.
